commissions. so i can understand where president bush and president obama have given to the department of justice the authority to move forward with the type of process that we have going on today. >> do you have questions about the fbi's tracking of the older suspect here who is now dead and whether something was missed? >> of course i do. and i think we should is ask those questions. that's our responsibility. i listened to mike rogers and i thought it he laid it out as a former fbi agent himself what we were faced with when we were asked these hard questions. we have to make sure as well, david, we give to the intelligence and law enforcement agencies, federal, state, and local, the resources they need to keep america safe. we live in a dangerous world. we live, also, in a free and open society we value very much. forward to keep americans safe at the marathon, at every other public event, we need to invest the resources that are necessary for law enforcement. >> is that a call, in fact, for re-examination of whether additional resources are needed to look at home grown terror and t
obama was sworn in for the first time in 2009. dan bonngeno was the lead secret service agent as people packed the national mall in downtown d.c. a potential terrorist could have been hiding in plain sight. >> you can't guarantee anything. you reduce the probability to hopefully something minuscule so if something happens your response is enough to keep casualties to a minimum n times square 2010. a car bomb failed to explode and was disarmed before it could hurt anyone. two days later a pakistani-american was caught trying to board a flight to the middle east. big sporting events like the boston marathon had been viewed as inviting targets since 9/11. the marine corps marathon attracts 30,000 runners each year. super bowl organize ohhers are often criticized for too much security at the big game. and securing every possible public event that could invite an attack is respond reasonable. michaelle leiter was the counter terrorism director under president george w. bush. >> you can't protect all of the people at all of the large sporting events or any public gathering. that's the advanta

the bombs exploded seconds apart. president obama calling it an act of terror but saying no group foreign or domestic claimed responsibility for the attack. at this point, joining me now is jeffrey deedee, a security consultant, trained with boston police s.w.a.t. team. thank you for being with us. what we know now about the bomb, apparently in a pressure cooker device, both devices hidden in a backpack, low to the ground, perhaps placed on the street. what do you make of what you're hearing about the devices? >> well, i'm alarmed by what i'm hearing about the devices, because i stand -- i got back last year after nine months in afghanistan, and these pressure cookers are a tactic, technique that is used by the taliban and by al qaeda in afghanistan. very effective weapons, they try to pick the pressure cookers up wherever they can, and they use them to make their ieds. and quite concerned that this is a ttt as they call it in the military that -- >> ttp. >> tactic, technique and -- but the ttp -- procedures -- things of the taliban that we're now seeing here. that doesn't mean it was the

effort to pass gun control legislation that failed. president obama is vowing to fight on and says he doll what lea can without congress. where will gun control be going from here? will democrat who is didn't tow the line be facing the heat from the white house? welcome to our guests. >> hi. >> hi, there. >> shannon: were the votes about conscience or re-election? >> lyou know, i will tell you something, what happened with the amendment, of course, that everyone was relying ont when it came to the gun control effort. the fact is, you have a bunch of democrat who is voted against that because they are needing re-election. they weren't going to sacrifice themselves or their careers for anabomma agend a. i would suggest for a democratally controlled senate, write a bill that can pass. it seems like none of them -- neither the republicans or the democrats -- wanted any of this to pass and they are both usingt for election airing, campaigning at this point. >> shannon: after the vote, the president spoke publicly and he seemed to be very upset. he said it was a shameful day for washington.
to half-staff, president obama praises those who rush to aid the injured. >> you want to know who we are? what america is? we respond to evil. that's it. selflessly, compassionately. unafraid. >> good day, i'm andrea mitchell live in washington. the fbi and intelligence agencies are involved in an intensive search for evidence and we have new details, breaking news about the explosives used in the boston bombings, joining me now, nbc news justin correspondent pete williams and michael leiter. pete, ha have you learn about the bombs themselves? >> well, what we're told by authorities, andrea, is that they're crudely made. they appear to have been assembled inside a pressure cooker. it may be some of our younger viewers don't know what that is, but in the olden days when you wanted to make something tender, you put it in this pot with a tight lid on it. and the steam wouldn't escape and you could build up pressure and things cook faster in them. the premicrowave days. inside a pot like this, a pressure cooker is assembled the device. it includes a low-power explosive. something like black
thoughts on that? >> i don't think that that's going to happen. the obama administration has been clear, they're distancing themselves from that concept. you've got an american citizen. we don't have dzhokhar going abroad in training. his brother apparently did. but dzhokhar didn't. and dzhokhar is going to be tried as an individual on his own right. so i think the chances of this ending up as an enemy combatant are very small. >> but you've heard that because of high security concerns they would like to question him for a period of time, albeit briefly, before mirandizing him and reading him his rights. how long can they do that? how far can they go with those questions? >> well, that's a very good question. because the longer we go, the less likely there is that there's a public security issue here. one thing that the defense will certainly raise is the remarks of the police chief of watertown in which he said these are the only two guys, we're done. now the argument from the government will be well, he wasn't informed. but, you know, that's going to be played out pretty significantly
obama and the first lady, we saw the governor, the mayor, huge venue for that interfaith service last thursday. we'll play that for you. and we will stop talking and pause to reflect. we promise to do that. i want to take you live to deb feyerick, who has been going over some of the details in the charges, reading through the criminal complaint. and, deb, talking about this earlier, the charges don't include that m.i.t. police officer shot and killed. >> correct. that's exactly right. you know, this criminal complaint really -- this is -- i've seen this happen before, this criminal complaint is roughly, let's see, this is ten pages long. when the final -- when the actual indictment comes out, chances are it will be many times larger than this. usually, you know, the indictments we get are anywhere between 40, 50, 60 pages, it all depends. this is what they have got so far. this is enough for them to hold this man in the hospital, as they continue to investigate. there is a lot of evidence out there, and very interesting, earlier you showed a picture of a group of people that are aroun
